Environmental Assessment Ruby River Channel Restoration Project

Development, Improvements, and Enhancements

Sun Jan 29 21:52:00 MST 2012

The Future Fisheries Program is proposing to provide partial funding to a project designed to restore a 2,026-foot reach of the Ruby River that had been historically straightened by lengthening the channel and returning meanders to the plan form. The project also calls for relocating some livestock feeding corrals currently encroaching into the riparian corridor. The intent of this project is to enhance aquatic habitat and trout populations, improve water quality and enhance the riparian vegetative community. The project site is located approximately one mile south of the community of Alder in Madison County.
